Yes, I’m alive!

Has it really been over two weeks since I posted?!? Time flies… I don’t tend to measure anything in minutes, hours or days anymore… they’re too short… I have to think in at least terms of weeks. That’s scary.

So Oregon was a blast… I didn’t realize Chris’ bride, Roseann, is a photographer as well (I’m a little slow sometimes) so that made at least four photographers in the wedding party! Along with the wedding activities, I experienced PAINTBALL for the first time… apparently, you want to wear some protective clothing when you engage in this activity. Let me just say that getting shot through a t-shirt with a paintball HURTS… ALOT!!! But it was good fun, more exercise than one might expect, too. Or else I’m just getting… old.

Oregon bound!

It’s 1:18am and I’m about to abandon you all for the rest of the week. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a ton of stuff left to do to really be “caught up” as far as work goes, so I hope everyone is patient while they wait for their surprises!

It’s so exciting to read the messages from everybody that reads the blog, and everybody that checks in to see their freinds’ images.

But I’ve been looking forward to this week for a long time. My good friend Chris Bennett called me months and months ago to tell me he was getting married, and would I fly out to Portland for the wedding? My response: I wouldn’t miss it for the world! We basicaly grew up together in the late eighties/early nineties skateboarding, going to shows and generally being a nuisance...

Wow! It was HOT Saturday! Yeah, July in Indiana is some serious business! Kelly and Jim had been planning quite a few adventures for their wedding day, and while we weren’t sure how much we’d actually get to because of the extreme heat, our minds were soon made up for us when it decided to rain! Typical Indiana weather!

Despite all that I think the wedding was very beautiful, Kelly and Jim seemed very happy, and everyon...

Three years ago I photographed Matt Beever and his wife Sarah’s wedding, and I was thrilled when I was asked to shoot for Matt’s little sister Lacey!

The wedding was saturday at St. Thom’s in West Lafayette...

Lilian!

We ran a promotion awhile back for child portraits, and I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to photograph Lilian and her family. As with lots of children it took a little time for Lilian to get used to the camera, but after she forgot I was there the results were fantastic. It’s wonderful to watch the innocence and happiness of a child at play with her loved ones. I hope we do lots more sessions like this one!

What a lovely weekend for a wedding in July. Very sunny and mild… I had a beautiful bride, a relaxed groom and a fun bridal party to work with on Saturday. I also returned to St. James here in Lafayette after a couple of years… it’s a nice looking church. The real fun came when we got to the Purdue Memorial Union and the bridal party started to cut up a little:

Here are some more favorites until I can ...

I was back in Renssalaer, Indiana for the first time in a few years, our wedding was in the chapel at St. Joseph’s College. July is here and it was HOT! Ashli was very eager to have her picture taken, which always makes my job easier! An interesting church, very reminiscent of St. Boniface here in Lafayette; a very beautiful church.

Thanks to both the families and especially the bridal party for hanging in there for pictures on this warm day! Here are some favorites of mine for now, click the images to view them at a larger size.

Wow, what a day for a wedding! Perfect weather, an UNBELIEVABLE church and a beautiful couple! My first time shooting at Meridian Street Methodist Church in Indianapolis, and I was simply blown away by the photographic opportunities of the church. We also spent some time as a group shooting downtown before moving on to the Hyatt.

The reception was great as well, with one of the best looking cakes I’ve seen in awhile...

Laura & Josh, June 17, 2006 (with Tom)

This week’s wedding was unique in that Tom and I were hired to shoot together. This was a fairly large wedding so it was decided that we’d split up for most of the day. I began with the arrival of the groomsmen and a few shots of them. Later we concentrated on capturing the ceremony from different perspectives. From them on my role was candids… so alot of my images aren’t based around the core activities of the day. I think it will be nice for Laura and Josh to look back at the images from throughout the day and see what their guests and friends were doing.

Some favorites of mine, click to view them at a larger size. Congratulations!












and what I think is my very favorite:
